Healthy Dinner

Preparing a dinner is something most of us, if not all of us, have to do each and everyday. After awhile meals become repetitive or we resort to ordering out simply because it’s fast and easy however, not necessarily healthy. Today I have for you, a healthy salmon dinner that requires little prep and is very easy to make.

You will need:

  • Salmon
  • Garlic
  • Honey
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Goya
  • Frozen Veggies (any you like)
  • Roasted Pepper quinoa
  • Salt
  • Lemon juice
  • Quinoa

For Quinoa:

Follow the instructions on box.
*TIP*: Quinoa can be quite grainy if you following the exact instructions on the box, I tend to let it cook a bit more so that it’s much softer in texture.

For Salmon: 

To make the salmon you will first need to wash the salmon and then place it on a baking tray. Once you place it on the tray you will sprinkle some Goya on it (or salt to taste), I quite like the flavor of Goya and therefore I use that. Then chop garlic (to taste) and place it in a bowl, add about three tablespoons of honey to the bowl and a little water so that the texture of the mixture loosens a little. Once you have this mixture, with a spoon drip it over the salmon and then sprinkle the italian seasoning over it. Place it in a toaster oven (or a regular oven) and cook the salmon until it’s lightly golden or cooked to your liking.

*TIP FOR EASY CLEANING*: add enough water so that the tray is just barely covered in water, this will prevent most of the stickiness that will be hard to scrub off.

For vegetables:

Place frozen vegetables of your choice in a pot, add some lemon juice and salt to taste then steam until they are done.
